Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this engaging Steven Soderbergh comedy received an R rating principally for language. The actual subject matter -- corporate misdeeds -- may only appeal to teens, however, because it stars Matt Damon. The movie is based on a true story and sends some mixed messages about corporate ethics; ethical breaches are treated somewhat lightly, which may make the crimes seem less serious. And the main character isn't exactly a role model himself. That said, teens old enough to understand the movie's tone won't miss the message about the importance of questioning greed and its place in today's society. While there's little sex or violence, you can expect some drinking and plenty of cursing (including "f--k," "s--t," and more), plus frank, sometimes complicated discussions about certain criminal activities.

Sexual Content

One man crudely discusses a former co-worker and how attractive she was.

Violence

Some intense arguments.

Language

Plenty of swearing, including many uses of "f--k" (some with "mother"), "s--t," "t-ts," "goddamn," "a--hole," "damn," "hell," and more.

Social Behavior

The main character says he wants to expose a huge corporate scandal because he believes it's wrong, but it soon it becomes clear that he has less pure motives for coming forward. The film is based on a true story about an investigation into price-fixing by massive conglomerate Archer Daniels Midland.

Consumerism

Brands mentioned or seen include luxury cars (like Porsche and Ferrari), EconoLodge, and Anheuser Busch.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some adult characters drink -- both socially and at times of crisis.
